White rice is rice that has had its bran (the fiberous outer layer) and germ (the nutritious core) removed during processing.
Because white rice is missing the bran and the germ—and the fiber and fat content that goes with them—it’s a simpler carbohydrate, meaning your body has an easier time breaking it down. This allows for quicker absorption of the nutrients, namely the carbohydrates. This makes white rice a great option for people who are needing a quick source of energy, like athletes or really anyone engaging in a longer workout or any type of activity.
While you might have heard that white rice has starch and is comparatively high on the glycemic index, the truth is that when accompanied by other foods such as vegetables, it can prevent blood sugar spikes.
